Nautilus has been a provider of quality geoscience training to the oil and gas industry since 1998. The 2008 offering of Calgary-based classes which are open for public enrollment marks a first for Nautilus – historically, our courses have only been available to companies who are members of the Geoscience Training Alliance (GTA).
Nautilus launched the GTA in the UK in 1998 with 6 member companies and an audience of 450 geoscientists. We set up our U.S. operation in 2001 and now have more than 50 members internationally and an audience exceeding 5000, with new companies joining on a regular basis. The 2008 GTA Program will include approximately 250 classes, and has grown because of its world-leading combination of choice, quality and reliability. Nautilus is now – by some distance – the most significant provider of geoscience training to the oil and gas industry in Europe, North America and Southeast Asia. The portfolio contains a high proportion of field classes - this is where geoscientists learn best.
The GTA is an alliance. Nautilus manages the program on behalf of the members, who in turn provide guidance, tutors, feedback, data and venues. The program is constantly refreshed, with approximately 20% of the courses undergoing a significant update and new courses being added each year. Because the member companies commit to purchase a certain level of training through a multi-year contract cycle, the frequency of cancelled classes is very low.
